7:07 am
attack from the obama campaign. it's "your voice, your vote." abc's jake tapper. good morning, jake. >> reporter: abc news has learned that starting this morning, the obama campaign will open up a new front in their attacks on mitt romney, going after his record as governor of massachusetts, when the state of massachusetts ranks 47th in the nation in job creation around the same time you mentioned, when romney risked being overshadowed by donald trump, who keeps bizarrely attacking the president, falsely, for not being born in the united states. overnight, mitt romney was raising money with donald trump, who is on a tear, spewing birther nonsense, alleging the president was not born in the u.s. >> a lot of people do not think it was an authentic certificate. >> how can you say that? >> a lot of people report it, wolf. many people do not think it's authentic. >> donald, you're beginning to sound a little ridiculous. i have to tell you. >> you are, wolf. >> reporter: republicans say it's risky for romney to
7:08 am
continue to appear with trump. it undermines his seriousness. and suggests he cannot stand up to that false nonsense from that wing of his party. >> i don't agree with everybody who support me. and my guess is they don't agree with everything i believe in. but i need to get 51% or more. and i'm appreciative to have the help of a lot of good people. >> reporter: for their part, this morning, the obama campaign will launch a new line of attacks. saying romney made all of the same promises when he ran for governor ten years ago. and the results were less than stellar. take job creation, for instance. he told this to college students in 2002. >> this is a critical election for you. this may determine whether or not there's a job waiting at the end of your graduation. >> reporter: similar to today's pitch. >> when you get out of college, if i'm president, you'll have a job. if president obama's re-elected, you will not be able to get a job. >> reporter: the attack, as david axelrod tweeted last week, he sold the same hooey in massachusetts ten years ago. and then, turned in one of the
7:09 am
worst performances as any governor in the usa. 47th in job creation. romney has billed himself as a businessman who could right the economic ship. >> i want to bring that skill for you here in massachusetts. >> reporter: and the obama team will use officials from massachusetts to make that attack. starting tomorrow, in response to the romney campaign says, george, romney created more jobs in the state of massachusetts than president obama has for the entire nation. we're happy to compare the 4.7% unemployment rate against president obama's failure to meet his own goal of 6% right now. >> jake, the romney campaign, in their edge, taking a bull's eye on the president's record. take a look. >> to create jobs. how is he doing? you've heard of solyndra. they took taxpayer guarantees
7:10 am
and went bankrupt. >> they say this trumps the president's attacks on bain capital. >> reporter: they're trying to make it appear that president stimulus and the auto talist. bailout were his funds. you're going to see the romney campaign focus on the economy. and the obama campaign try to make mitt romney an unacceptable alternative, even as the president is under water in his approval rating, george. >> thank you very much. now, to the latest on the high-stakes trial of former presidential candidate, john edwards. the jury is heading into its eighth day of deliberations today. bob woodruff has been covering the trial since the beginning. and is in greensboro, north carolina. good morning, bob. >> reporter: this is the eighth-straight day of deliberations for the jurors. and this is the sixth-straight week for the trial. a moment ago we were talking that this verdict was coming. but it didn't. for a fleeting moment, late tuesday, it appeared the jury
7:11 am
had at last made their decision. judge katherine eagles said the jury had reached a -- and she paused. everyone in the room held her breath. she continued. a good stopping point for the day. the courtroom erupted in laughter, including edwards and his lawyer, abby lowell, who buried his face on the defense table in apparent exasperation. does it seem like the judge is getting exasperated? >> i think it's an indication she would like the jury to reach the verdict, sooner rather than later. >> reporter: john edwards, his aging parents and his daughter, cate, has been close at hand throughout the deliberations. anticipating the moment they learn the verdict, that could send him to prison or clear the dark cloud over his head. he had taken walks outside with cate and his mother. and has taken in a few college baseball games at a stadium
7:12 am
nearby the courthouse. >> regardless of what they're doing for him externally. i think he is projecting confidence. >> reporter: still, what everyone wants to know is what's happening inside that jury room and why this is taking so long. >> you could have division on the ultimate facts of the case or counts. but if there's division about the process, then that's a whole new level of problems that causes jurors to go awol and unable to reach a verdict. >> reporter: we don't know exactly what the jurors are thinking about. the 12 main jurors behind those doors. but we do know that the alternates, the four of them seem to be having some fun. they've worn the same clothes many times last week. they all wore pink. then, they wore yellow. and red, white and blue. yesterday, it was all black and gray. we're also being told we have about 15-minute warning when the verdict is about to come. that's why john edwards and his family are not able to go far away from here, either. robin? >> each and every day. all right, bob. >> seems like one intense jury
7:13 am
room. we're learning about the man who confessed to killing etan patz, the 6-year-old new yorker that disappeared 30 years ago. the sister said she went to authorities years ago. but they did nothing. >> reporter: we heard within hours of hernandez's arrest, that he told family members and friends of the crime in the 1980s. this morning, his sister, norma, said not only did she hear of this. but she tried to tell police. this morning, the sister of the suspect in the etan patz case is speaking out. one week after her brother confessed to strangling etan patz 33 years ago, norma hernandez is telling abc news, she went to police years ago. telling them, her brother had confessed to something terrible during a prayer group. she says she remembers going to a camden, new jersey, police station. telling a man at the front desk
7:14 am
in a police uniform, that her brother shared a disturbing story. >> he had to do with a little boy. he confessed that he strangled and put a little boy in the trash. >> reporter: all these years later, she says she remembers police giving them a copy of her license. they never called her back. >> i was expecting a detective to say something. but they never did. >> reporter: but this morning, camden, new jersey, police making a statement. this is the first time we're learning of her comments. calling this an ongoing homicide investigation. new york city police say they had not heard of this before. but said that pedro hernandez had told friends about the crime as far back as 1981. meanwhile, two parents who never moved, never changed their phone number, now dealing with the case making headlines again. a photographer taking this picture, riding his bike past the same corner. where hernandez worked in the bodega. and said he lured that little
7:15 am
boy with the promise of a soda. and then, strangled him. and years after norma hernandez says she went to police, she says she would do it again. >> if he's innocent, i ask god to forgive me for going to the police. but at that time, i thought i was doing the right thing. >> reporter: her brother is being held in a psychiatric ward. his attorney saying his client is bipolar. you saw etan's father on his bike. etan's mother, had reporters outside their door. that same apartment, that she just wishes this was all over. you can imagine what they're going through. >> thanks very much. >> david, thank you. a lot of investors unfriending facebook right now. the stock keeps going down since the company went public. but pictures out this morning of mark zuckerberg and his wife, priscilla, on their honeymoon. they don't seem to have a care in the world. abc's bianna golodryga has much more on all that. >> reporter: so much has changed since you sat down with mark
7:16 am
zuckerberg a short time ago. it's safe to say mark zuckerberg has a lot on his mind. everything from facebook's botched ipo, to investor lawsuits. to news that he's falling off the list of the 40 richest people. right now, shareholders are asking, why isn't he at work. >> reporter: while mark zuckerberg and his new bride, priscilla chan, may be enjoying a roman holiday, his romance with investors appears to be cooling off. as the couple dined out in rome, sailed the coast, strolled the cobble streets and checked out the ceiling of the sistine chapel, facebook stock has dropped through the floor. closing tuesday at $28.84. dropping 20% since the company went public. leading to heated debates on cable news. >> good investment -- >> reporter: and leading one paper to write, zuckerberg's in rome, while his investors are burning. >> if mark zuckerberg was to
7:17 am
rush back, people would interpret it as a crisis. >> reporter: it's not everyday investors who have last money. zuckerberg's own net worth has plummeted, falling by $5 billion. some online point out that the couple's smiles just 11 days ago, seem to become a bit more solemn. one british newspaper saying that the billionaire and his wife didn't leave a tip after dinner or a lunch. >> he's a guy living a shockingly modest life for somebody work the dollars he's worth. and nobody begrudges him a honeymoon at a time like this. >> reporter: should mr. and mrs. zuckerberg be saying good-bye? some say probably not. >> we had a difficult few weeks in the market. a lot of news globally, unrelated to facebook. it's difficult to have an extreme move to the upside. >> reporter: some would be wondering why facebook
7:18 am
executives haven't spoken out about the flailing stock performance. they're in a quiet period where they can't talk about financial matters relating to the company. >> they can't begrudge them a honeymoon. >> we were discussing this. and knew that life was going to be different once they went public. >> he has to carry a little cash and leave better tips. >> that's embarrassing. >> that's true. bianna, good to have you back. sam? >> good morning, you guys. we start with what's going on in the southeastern seaboard. remember the spoiler for beryl. it's still there. we'll watch that low pull back into the water and probably restrengthen to tropical storm strength. by the time it pulls out, there will be places that continue to get rain out of this storm. it will be on the carolina coastline. but also virginia and southern new jersey with showers. then, look at the heat across the country. even though, the cooler temperatures have moved into the great lakes and the northern
7:19 am
tier, most of the nation will bake under these temperatures today.
7:20 am
>> i do want to point out the storms in the middle of the country. particularly bad for central oklahoma today. so, robin, george, josh? let's look right now, one more time at the scenes from buckingham palace. there was kate right there. beautiful pink outfit. but 8,000 guests of the queen's diamond jubilee guarden party. >> and the beautiful dress that you pointed out, george, that we saw a couple weeks ago. >> you made fun of me for pointing that out. >> so much more pressure on lara and me. >> next monday and tuesday, great coverage of the jubilee. we're looking forward to that. >> we'll be recycling a lot, too. >> okay. >> recycled looks good. >> you look good once. look good again. we have new clues in the desperate search for the missing

you're right, george. you met the man who shot to worldwide fame. zenny. now, we're going to introduce you to the woman giving him a real run for his money. and she has a terrific backstory. but she is a ridiculously photogenic woman. >> she is. right now, we get to new details in the mickey shunick case. >> reporter: george, good morning. the police tell me they haven't given up hope that shunick is still alive. but the new developments, including the condition of her bike, and the fact they've called off the large search parties, suggest the investigation is heading in a different direction. abc news has learned that 22-year-old mickey shunick's bicycle was found with significant damage to the rear tire, including a bent rim. police say they found tire marks near the area where the bike turned up sunday, submerged in
7:32 am
water. ten miles where shunick was last seen riding it on this surveillance footage. >> we believe that person, the perpetrator drove to the water and dumped the bike not to be found. >> reporter: former fbi profiler, brad garrett, says the fact that the bike was damaged and dumped near the highway, suggests that shunick may have been hit by a car. the crime lab is running testing on the bike. >> paint from the suspect's vehicle. mickey's dna on it. it could be the subject's dna on it. it would be a wealth of information gathered, in addition to the location of the bike. >> we're going to see her soon. we're going to get her home. it's going to be over soon. >> reporter: the university of louisiana at lafayette student, was last seen leaving her friend's house on her bike around 2:00 in the morning on
7:33 am
may 19th. prompting her family and friends to launch an extensive search. late tuesday, that search was called off. >> as far as volunteers go, we love them and appreciate them. and we feel they need a little bit of break. >> reporter: instead, police are focusing their search on these three cars, captured on security cameras around the same time the tape of shunick was taken. they've not heard from the drivers of this four-door chevy truck, this older model sedan, or this newer model white pickup. >> it's important for them to locate and identify the drivers of the three vehicles that were on surveillance tape because one of them could be the suspect. but equally important, they could be witnesses. >> reporter: and mickey's sister believes this latest development is positive news. supporting the family's theory this was all an accident. and mickey is out there, alive. >> john, thanks very much. let's bring in "gma" legal analyst, dan abrams, for more on this. that's the question right now. we know the bike was hit. was it an intentional hit or an
7:34 am
accident? >> it looks like the bike was hit. the first thing they wanted to determine was could the bike be thrown off the bridge? the authorities seem to have ruled that out. they don't think that has happened. they think the bike was placed there. there's limited damage to the bike. does this mean she was hit by a car? they seem to think that is likely. was it intentional? or wasn't it? meaning, was someone trying to push her off the road so they could grab her? or did someone accidentally hit her and then, whatever happened? >> then, the surveillance tape becomes key, of course, because you want to figure out if one of those cars hit the bike. >> or witnesses. that's a wealth of information right there. the fact you have three identifiable cars there, to go after. to try to find the people who were driving them. that's really important in the context of this. >> even though the bike was under water, they can try to connect -- >> they can still try to get evidence. the bike was not there for years. so, there's still fingerprints,
7:35 am
other things that can be gotten off of that bike, even though it was underwater for a period of time, that they're hoping can help answer a lot of the questions. >> and police say even though they're calling off the intensive search, that's not a sign they're giving up hope. >> it's more targeted. it's not to suggest they're giving up. it's not to suggest they're throwing in the towel. but they have a lot better information now to target the investigation. so, they don't have to do the massive search. now, they have all of the information we just discussed about the car and the location and the bike. and they can now use that information to do a much more pinpointed investigation, rather than just to send out all these people and all these volunteers doing a massive search. >> okay. dan abrams, thanks very much. >> all right, you two. justin bieber is not letting that reporter run-in with the paparazzi slow him down. you see him right here, saying hello to fans. now, there's new video of the photographer just after the

the paparazzo snapped pictures of bieber and salena gomez, later blocking their car. >> he came this way. and i was over there. and just went for him, against the car. >> reporter: during the aftermath, as gomez tried to calm down her boyfriend, witnesses say she lost her phone. and some accused the paparazzi of taking it. >> we don't have the phone. we really don't. >> reporter: at a memorial day party, gomez, however, was in no mood to chat. blowing off questions about the incident. >> salena, was that self-defense with justin? >> reporter: for "good morning america," rob nelson, abc news, new york. >> you think they're going to answer when they shout out a question like that? >> you can always hope. you never know. it is 7:37. time, again, for the weather. boy, that board. a lot of trouble on the board. >> yeah. we're about to show you kind of frightening and disturbing pictures in the west.

a little madonna rehearsal video. we're going to get to the growing feud between two of the world's biggest stars. madonna has never come out and accused lady gaga of steal her stuff. but on hur new tour, she has a new way to show what she really thinks. and linsey davis has more on the dueling divas. >> reporter: the newly-released footage is producing a diva dust-up. videos of her rehearsal on her tour, shows a mashup of her song, "express yourself," and lady gaga's hit, "born this way." madonna once said the similarities between the two songs was interesting. but is she taking a dig? if imitation really is the highest form of flattery, madonna should be thrilled. from the cones to the bland pony
7:44 am
tail, lady gaga has made no secret of her admiration of madonna. >> there is no one that's a more adoring and loving madonna fan than me. >> reporter: but when does inspiration cross the line into imitation? "nightline's" cynthia mcfadden asked madonna about that earlier this year. after the merrill girl said she found "born this way," strikingly similar to "express yourself." >> it feels reductive. >> is that good? >> look it up. >> reporter: reductive. simplified or crude. gaga answered back in an interview with a british music magazine saying, i'm not dumb enough or moranic enough, that you're dumb enough or moranic enough not to see that i stole a melody. now, madonna is expressing herself on the controversy again. check out this video. madonna mashing up the two

>> i want to leave. >> reporter: you want to leave? okay. so, field station dinosaurs just opened over the weekend. a big hit. they don't bite. and i'm not that bad of a mother. my son said he wanted to leave. we got in the car and he said, i want to go back. >> he looked like he wanted to go back. >> he actually did. mom of the year, not. >> it's nine minutes from manhattan. 90 million years back in time. >> that's right. >> that's what you're saying. >> that's right. >> hey, billy. how are you doing? i feel like i have a.d.d. this morning. >> the candidate. i know. >> thank you, paula. thank you. >> you're in for a surprise. the first complete dinosaur skeleton found in jersey in the 1800s. >> a fun takeaway. by the way, bianna will be grilling now. it wausz joke.
8:36 am
it was a joke, people. t-rex. let's get to the boards. one or two things going on this morning as you head outside your door. how about the twitter pictures? we had so many from the storms yesterday. electra, texas, watching clouds move by. and also, in bath, new york. what a rough night it was last night and early in the morning, as the front of storms went through the northeast. a lot of hail reports and wind reports and rain reports there. there's one part of the country that is soaking wet today. cape hatteras into burlington. that is probably what is left of
8:37 am
>> all that weather was brought to you by e-surance. josh elliott's right there. amc's "the killing" weaves together three stories. one of the stories focuses on a hotly-contested race in seattle. this man, billy campbell, is the top mayoral candidate. and at this point, the number one murder suspect. >> how did it go with gwen? >> she's fine. you don't have to worry. >> good. i'll make it up to her after this is all over. what?
8:38 am
>> you have any skeletons i need to know about, darren? that's my job. but i can't help you if the newspapers and the people know more than i do. >> don't worry. >> you do a remarkable job, billy, of really making everybody a suspect at some point or another. why do you think this show has resonated as it has with fans? >> because, really, i think because most crime fiction on tv gets short scripted to the other victims of crime. or you know, the friends and family of the original victim. it's intense. >> if nothing else. it must have been a challenge for you, as well. most of season two spent recuperating, in a wheelchair or a bed. as an actor, what kind of challenge was that? >> it was a big challenge. i got to sleep all day. they'd break for lunch. i'd go to sleep. and they'd wake me up after lunch when they were ready to shoot. you think i'm not. but there were challenges.
8:39 am
obviously not something i've been through. there were challenges. >> what did you make of the outcry to the controversial end of season one, when, in fact, the killing was not, in fact, solved. if something else, does it speak for the fan ardor of this show? >> i think exactly that. i was encouraged about the reaction. it meant people were passionate about the show. >> quickly, a friend of mine, matthew willard. his directtoral debut. >> matthew directed a film. "fat kid rules the world." you can get it on kickstarter. >> great review. this is billy campbell, star of "the killing." it airs sundays on amc. billy, thanks. coming up, get ready for the

[ cheers and applause ] as you can tell, folks around here very excited because summer is right around the corner. plenty of people are busy planning their warm-weather getaways. the big question for dog owners, do you take your pup along for the trip? "gma" contributor, becky worley, takes a look at what it takes to turn your pet into a jet-set. >> reporter: celebrities travel everywhere with their dogs. they make it look so easy. and they have so much gear. bags, harnesses, jackets. i mean, do i need something like this? to figure out how hard it is to travel with pets, i'm fostering nicki, from the tone in a larussa animal rescue foundation. she's a terrier/chihuahua mix.
8:44 am
she's under 20 pounds, which is the limit you want to bring your pet into the cabin. there was a little option. and i had to pay 125 bucks to fly with nicki. she's gotten her paperwork from the vet, certifying she's healthy. now, it's time to talk carrier. lisa gill from "conde nast traveler" is here with options. there's lots of new options. easier for you to carry and swankier for the dogs. they have to be airline-approved, crush-proof, and big enough for the dogs to stand up and turn around. next, consider the temperature. my next concern, going to the bathroom. these are doggy diapers for the airplane. she is mostly house broken. on the day of travel, the obvious. tucker her out. feed her at her normal time.
8:45 am
she won't be able to eat or drink on the plane. and one thing you have to remember, doggy health certificate, mandatory for travel. nicki needs her own boarding pass. and your pup in its carrier is considered a piece of baggage. so, yo uh can only take one other thing onboard. also one other things, most airports have doggy relief areas. but they're not centrally located. a lot of extra time for the walk. at security, the big message, carry the dog through. don't put her on the conveyor belt. full disclosure, this was kind of stressful. lots of shuffling. making sure nicki's okay. and i'm a little nervous. we're taking the red-eye because i thought she would be more likely to sleep. that's a tip. fly around your dog's schedule. what if she barks? okay. we've made it onboard. i'm not supposed to take her out
8:46 am
of her carrier at all. but, hey. she needs her sweater. it's wheels up and lights out. wish us luck. it's all on nicki now. up, up, and away. [ cheers and applause ] >> how did nicki do, becky? >> we did great. we made it here. it was a little stressful. but on the plane, she seemed to zone out and go to sleep. and no peeing. >> always concerned about that. you travel with k.j., right? >> a lot. i never thought about the sweater. >> don't you find it to be a lot of hassle in the airport? >> it's worth it. it's worth it when they're like this. >> we had one small incident. i had another crate that she wasn't in. it was an empty crate. it was attached to my luggage that i was checking. as i was wheeling it into the elevator, it popped off of my luggage and went flying.
8:47 am
and someone screamed on the elevator, is your pet in there? no. she's safe. >> and she's available for adoption? >> yes. she's from tony la russa animal rescue foundation. nicki needs a home. but k.j. needs a friend. >> you can read more about becky's trip on goodmorningamerica.com on yahoo! coming up, sara moulton's here and whipping up tasty dishes you do not want to miss.
